You learn something new everyday.

Yesterday I learned that we have porcupine in our woods. I didn't even know we had porcupine in this area.

How did I learn this little gem of information you ask?

Leave it to Sadie...
Well of course, our blind Sadie girl got into a brawl with a porcupine. She lost... or rather, we lost. $442.29 to be exact. She had to be taken to the vet to remove the quills and there were so many that they had to put her under anesthesia. I am thankful that the vet was able to remove the quills and give her some pain medicine... but seriously $442.29?!?!?!...including the $68 quill disposal fee.... Really? I have a trash can that I can throw them into for free!

Aww, poor Sadie! Hey, I would have let you dispose of the quills in my trash for only $34, that's half price, what a deal...

I know! I had no idea that we had them here. Though honestly I hadn't really given any thought to where they would live :)

Poor Sadie! Sorry you had to go through that. It's crazy they charged you a disposal fee for quills!!! Maybe she needs a seeing eye dog. Love yeah, Cuz Nicole.
